The Best Calgary Dog Daycare
Canada Best Dog Grooming
Dogs' lives are short. Being alone is not what they deserve.
Dogs’ lives are indeed too short for loneliness. They deserve days filled with joy, companionship, and adventure, not hours of waiting for their favorite human to return. A dog’s well-being hinges on regular activity, social interactions, and meticulous care. Without these essentials, our furry friends may become restless, unhappy, or even develop undesirable behaviors.

Dog Loving Owner

What can PAWS Dog Daycare Calgary do for your dog?


Physical exercise comes from the act of walking itself, but mental stimulation comes from each dog following the direction of the pack leader and the pack.


Dogs are inherently social creatures, which is why our kennel-free facility focuses on fostering natural interactions. Here, dogs can freely play, snuggle, and bond with each other, far removed from the constraints of a cage.


We go above and beyond to offer an exceptional dog daycare experience, and that includes scheduled potty breaks three times a day. Unlike other facilities, we prioritize both cleanliness and the continuity of your dog's house training.

Do you require any vaccinations or health checks?

Yes, ensuring the health and safety of all dogs in our care is essential. Puppies must have at least their 2nd set of shots to join our daycare. While the Bordetella vaccine is strongly recommended for all dogs, Rabies vaccination is mandatory as per the Province of Alberta's regulations. It's crucial that your dog's vaccinations are kept current according to your veterinarian's recommended schedule.

If your dog has any health concerns, physical limitations, or medical conditions that might affect their participation in our pack walks, or any other activities, please inform us in advance. We prioritize the well-being of every furry member and want to ensure they receive the appropriate care and attention.

How is the initial introduction handled for new dogs?

Safety is our utmost priority. Recognizing the varied temperaments and behavioral challenges of dogs, we have a dog behavioral expert with over 15 years of experience. Their expertise ensures all dog interactions are supervised and conducted in the safest manner possible. Our introduction day is particularly designed with safety in mind.

To ensure each new dog receives undivided attention and care, we integrate only one new member a day. We understand that the first day in a new environment can be overwhelming, even for the most social dogs. If you have concerns regarding your dog's behavior, please call us directly at (403) 984-9247 to initiate a behavioral assessment.

How do you handle dogs of different sizes and temperaments?

At our Calgary dog daycare, we pride ourselves on our "Structured Socialization" approach. With the foundation set on our thoughtful intro day and our kennel-free environment, dogs of various sizes and temperaments are encouraged to socialize and interact freely.

An integral part of our routine is the daily pack walk. By walking together, dogs not only bond but any potential tension or animosity they might have towards each other is diffused. This communal activity reinforces camaraderie and ensures that only friends walk together.

Our dedicated team closely supervises all interactions, guaranteeing safety and fostering positive relationships, making our dog daycare in Calgary a harmonious haven for all canine guests.

Can I tour the facility before enrolling my dog?

The best time to come visit our dog daycare is midday between 12:00pm and 2:00pm.

We always welcome potential pet parents to get a firsthand look at our Calgary dog daycare facility. However, to ensure you get the best experience, it's essential to note our busiest times.

Mornings during drop-off and pick-up times in the evenings are particularly lively, with dogs excited to either see their friends or reunite with their owners.

During these periods, our attention is largely on ensuring a smooth transition for the dogs, especially as we prepare them for our signature pack walks.

While you're always welcome to drop by, coming between noon and 2pm would be optimal. This ensures we can dedicate time to answer all your questions and give you the attention you deserve.

How do you manage emergencies or medical situations?

In case of non-emergency medical concerns, we direct all inquiries to Downtown Animal Clinic, with whom we have a close working relationship. For emergencies, we rely on the Western Veterinary Specialist and Emergency Centre located on 10th Ave SW in Calgary.

Do you provide food, or should I pack a meal for my dog?

We do not provide food and if you would like us to feed your dog lunch, please bring their pre-portioned food in a container with their first and last name clearly labeled.

Is there a waitlist to start doggy daycare?

Our welcome policy ensures only one new dog per day. We do this to ensure you and your dog get the attention and care you both deserve. Due to this policy, the waitlist for start at PAWS Dog Daycare Calgary is typically about 1 - 2 weeks. To find out the soonest available date for your dog's first day, please call us directly at (403) 984-9247.

How do you handle additional support or specific instructions for individual dogs?

At PAWS Dog Daycare Calgary, we address dogs who need additional support and specific instructions on a case-by-case basis. It's vital for us to know any special requests or instructions you might have. Please be aware, even though rare, there may be additional charges.

For instance, due to one of our dogs having an owner's child with a severe peanut allergy, we ensure all staff on-site are aware and refrain from using peanut butter on days that dog is present.

Your pet's well-being is our priority, and we strive to accommodate all needs to the best of our ability.

What feedback will I receive about my dog's day?

Alongside the report card provided on the intro day at PAWS Dog Daycare Calgary, we prioritize consistent communication. If any concerns arise during your dog's time with us, we'll promptly update you. This includes offering recommendations related to potential training, adjustments in your dog's schedule, visit frequency, diet, and other pertinent factors.

Our goal is to ensure your pet's well-being and foster open dialogue with you as their loving owner.
